Camas - First Friday in February- " A Chocolate and Wine Affair."
I've been having an affair for years. It started with the first temptation of warm chocolate chip cookies (with a glass of cold milk). My desire escalated to Reeses peanut butter cups in my teens, to dark chocolate as I matured. Admittedly, today I have a strong desire for addiction to "chocolate."
February's First Friday in Downtown Camas ( Feb 1, 2013) is the perfect event for me ( and others like me). " A Chocolate Affair to Remember," features designer and local chocolates showcased throughout the charming downtown area. Plus, there's Artwalk, dining and after-hours shopping from 5-8PM.
Romance goes well with Chocolate at this month's First Friday in Camas.
Perhaps all that delicious chocolate will prompt you to take part in some early gift shopping for your Valentine. After all, the charming shops in Downtown Camas offer a variety of special finds you don't normally see in the big box stores. Naturally, as you shop, you'll be sampling delicious chocolates too.
In fact, select locations will offer wine tastings along with the chocolate delights. Each participating merchant will also have a jar of Valentine's candy and you get to guess the amount to win the candy! All guesses will be entered into a drawing for a Valentine themed basket. ( You don't have to be present to win)
Plus, Navida's is hosting a S'mores Roast in the street in front of their shop at 322 NE Cedar. There's a rumor that the Camas Fire Department will have a truck nearby for the kids to climb on. And there's even a "Have a Heart" mini sidewalk concert featuring GraceLyricMusic.
